A delicious pudding topped with a dollop of creme fraiche. The recipe was reduced to 4 servings. The carrots were steamed in the microwave as suggested. All the ingredients were placed in the Vita-Mix and whirled until smooth then poured into a baking dish. The pudding was set in about 45 minutes and instead of honey, I used Agave Nectar. This would be a delicious side for roasted chicken as well.
